Gloversville man catches rare fish

LAKE GEORGE — Mark Clemente of Gloversville caught and released a lake trout in Lake George the first week of September. The leucistic lake trout was quite a shocker to see when it came out from under the boat. It looked like a giant goldfish. It was just 23 inches, and he would guess in the 5-pound range.

A biologist at the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation looked into it and says this is considered reduced color pigmentation, called leucistic. It’s very rare.
